Police announce service modifications due to COVID-19
In response to COVID-19, the Vallejo Police Department has made several service changes.
Effective immediately, the police records front lobby will be closed starting Tuesday until further notice, VPD Capt. Jason Potts announced in a Monday afternoon press release. Individuals wishing to obtain copies of police reports should call (707) 648-4491 between the hours from 9:30 a.m. through 5 p.m. or should initiate their request through Vallejo Police online services at www.vallejopd.com or https://www. city of vallejo.net/city_hall/ departments ___ divisions/ police.
Reports will be released via email or general mail, and all fingerprinting and non-essential records functions will be suspended until further notice, Potts added.
The Vallejo Police Department Community Services Section at 2 Florida St. will be closed to the general public. Those needing police services should contact dispatch at (707) 648-4321 (non-emergency) or 9-1-1 (emergency).
All code enforcement fees should be mailed into 2 Florida Street, Vallejo, CA 94590. Citizens may also call (707) 648-4469.
Persons needing assistance arriving at the Vallejo Police Department, located at 111 Amador St. are asked to utilize the dedicated phone by the entry door to speak directly to a police dispatcher.
The department will begin to accept reports of nonemergent matters over the telephone to limit exposure between officers and members of the public when appropriate.
“Your call will be screened to determine if it meets criteria, and the information will be taken over the telephone or online at www.vallejopd.com,” Potts said. “All community engagement activities, such as large community meetings and events, have been canceled until further notice.”
Potts further said that all police officers will continue to respond to all calls for service where a response is determined to be necessary.
“We will continue to monitor this situation and advise of any further changes as warranted,” Potts said. “We thank you for your understanding and pledge to stand with our community as we collectively weather this storm.”
The department is encouraging the public to continue to take the necessary precautions — wash hands, keep hands away from one’s face, clean heavily used surfaces and avoid large gatherings.
